Join members of the Saddle Tramps in one of Texas Tech's oldest traditions, the wrapping of the Will Rogers statue. Midnight Raiders begins at 7 p.m. each Thursday night prior to home football games.

Once the statue is wrapped, the traditional bell circle is formed and all fans in attendance are able to participate. The Saddle Tramps along with other Tech students then tie red and black crepe paper all throughout campus to complete the event. The Will Rogers Statue is located next to Memorial Circle in the heart of the Texas Tech campus.
